We’re here for you, whether you’re on an In-Person, Virtual or Distance study Gym Instructor and or Personal Trainer course.
We want your learning experience to be rich, rewarding and as convenient as possible, which is why we offer additional resources to help you complete your studies.
If you enrol on the Distance study option of one of our Gym Instructor and or Personal Trainer courses, there is a practicum/work experience component you need to complete – 20 hours for the Gym Instructor component and 20 hours for the Personal Trainer component.
As an alternative to the practicum/work experience, you can book onto optional, scheduled eClasses – four for the Gym Instructor component and four for the Personal Trainer component.
Remember, these are not mandatory: they are optional alternatives to the practicum/work experience component and accordingly there is an additional charge for each eClass. Once you enrol on an eClass you can attend that eClass as many times as you like.
As another alternative to the practicum/work experience component required for the Distance study option of our Gym Instructor and or Personal Trainer courses, you can book onto and attend an optional, scheduled training day – one for for the Gym Instructor component and one for the Personal Trainer component.
Optional training days are not compulsory: they are an alternative to the practicum/work experience component and there is an additional charge for each training day.
Our Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer courses include access to our exercise library which contains over 200 videos of different exercises and stretches. The videos are categorised into sections to make it easy to find what you’re looking for. For example, ‘core-stability ball’ or ‘dynamic stretching’ etc.
The videos show regressions and progressions too, allowing you to plan sessions with beginner, intermediate and advanced gym users.
Our Gym Instructor and or Personal Trainer courses include a workbook that you can complete alongside the online course material and portfolio. There is a workbook for the Gym Instructor component and a workbook for the Personal Trainer component and they each contain links to the online presentations and portfolios, as well as revision questions and tasks.
You can download and print a workbook, or you can purchase a printed copy.
It’s not compulsory for you to complete a workbook but if you do you won’t submit it to us for marking: it’s not an assessment piece. It’s simply an additional learning tool we’ve created to support your learning journey.
